brown of georgia. and on tuesday he won back his house seat, and therefore his place on the house science committee. there's no suspense about paul brown's re-election because he ran unopposed. but in a development worthy of national recognition, maybe a national round of applause, i need to tell you that nearly 4,000 of paul brown's constituents went in to the voting booth on tuesday, and decided that instead of just voting for unopposed paul brown, or instead of just not voting for anybody in that race, nearly 4,000 people in paul brown's district decided they would write in a worthy opponent for him. nearly 4,000 in his district went into the voting booth on tuesday and wrote in the name charles darwin. instead of voting for the evolution is lies from the pit of hill guy. which is maybe as good a reminder as we are ever going to get in this country that it is not just that when things seem dire that we should hope for improvement. sometimes even when things go great, good-bye todd akin. sometimes there is still room for yet more good news on top of something you already thought
